Ethan From

In life change is inevitable, in novels it is a way of life. All of the
characters in., Ethan Frome change in one way or another, From Ethan Falling in
love with Mattie, to him starting to shave every morning. These changes from the
minor ones to the major ones all play a large part in the story. Another change
that happens in the story is Ethan's opinion about the gravestone, It goes from
him thinking that he will never escape to him pondering would him and Mattie be
buried next to each other. One of the biggest examples of change in the story is

Ethan falling in love with Mattie. This is a big change because he is already
married to Zeena. The marriage to Zeena is simply a marriage of convenience. It
isn't a love marriage and He is starting to fall in love with Mattie. Since

Mattie Came to stay with Zeena And Ethan Has Change quite a bit for the better.

Zeena and Mattie both Change Ethan in different, Mattie who Ethan is falling in
love with changes Ethan in a positive manner, While Zeena Who he is married to

Changes him in a more negative matter. Zeena Who always has a negative attitude
has probably age Ethan more than the winters and the smash up put together, but
since Mattie came Ethan is starting to act nicer and as if he were younger.

Where as Zeena Locked Ethan out just because "she was feeling to mean to
sleep" Mattie cares about Ethan and actually talks to him. Another
noticeable change in Ethan Frome is His opinion of the gravestones. This changes
dramatically from The beginning of the novel to the part that I'm on now. In the
beginning of the novel these tombstones are like a constant reminder that no one
in his family was able to make it out of that town and he wouldn't make it out
either. Now in the middle of the story He looks at the tombstone and wonders
what it would be like when he died if he was with Mattie and buried right next
to her. He is looking forward to is life ever since Mattie Moved in with them.
